HondaJet: more details and photos released

Honda provided updates of what to expect from its HondaJet advanced light jet program at this year’s National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention. Honda talked about its production cockpit and cabin designs that feature production parts, indicating the quality of materials, colors and finishes.

Michimasa Fujino, Honda Aircraft Company's President and CEO, said that the advantages of the HondaJet's advanced design are proven by the more than 500 flight hours that have been accumulated on the concept HondaJet as well as the successful completion of the robust range of static structural stress tests on the conforming aircraft.

Honda also said that ground testing is ongoing for its first conforming flight test aircraft and that static structural stress testing is underway on its second conforming aircraft.

In addition, Honda said that the assembly of its third conforming flight test aircraft had started. Fujino described Honda's Advanced Systems Integration Test Facility to be a “powerful tool that will support the most efficient development and certification process possible for the HondaJet.”

He added that as the ASITF system cab effectively identifies any developmental issues at the earliest possible stages of the process, it will be able to support an accelerated program momentum and this will lead to the creation of the “best possible aircraft."

Honda added that construction of the HondaJet production facility on its Greensboro campus is nearly completed and is in the final phase of construction. The 250,000 square feet production facility is expected to be completed in early 2011, which would be when pre-production preparations and training of production staff will start.
